“Typical brewery setup”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2011

First of all, the beer is really good, and a reason in itself to go here! There is an outdoor garden for summer season, and a mega-hall for winter. The food is not really top, even though you will be well fed - portions are big! The service is quick, but a bit of the funny kind... In summer, this place can be quite packed, so a reservation is recommended.

“Nice looking place, good food, reasonable price, AWFUL service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2011

Been there twice, on a busy sunday and a quiet wednesday, so to be sure that the first bad experience was not just a change incident. The place is very nice, the protected garden with a fountain makes for a nice outdoor rest without the traffic noise, the inside is scenographic enough. Food is really good (tried the goulash and the ribs, the latter very good), portions are generous. Prices are reasonable. Unfortunately, both times I had to wait a good quarter of hour to order and even then with a major effort to get the attention of the waiters. Once the order is placed the service is fast (which reinforces me in the opinion that the problem lies in the waiters, they just don't come around and when they do they do not look around), but again it takes a major effort to ask for any follow up or for the bill. For the first time in ages I was so fed up not to leave any tip. It's unfortunate, with better waiters this place would be very very good.. as it is, it's still an adequate place to go when you really have time to waste with friends.

“Famous for the spareribs, shame about the service.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2011

Brandauer's is in a lovely setting. Outside there are lots of tables set up under tall trees with a nice little fountain in the middle. Inside is equally large, and the decor is also lovely.

The portions are huge, but you can get a doggy bag which is completely the thing to do in Austria. So if you are not a big eater, I would recommending sharing an order of spareribs between 2 or 3 people.

I would also recommend the Eismarillenknoedel if you still have room for dessert. It's a vanilla ice-cream dumpling, with an apricot flavoured centre, rolled in biscuit crumbs.

The only downer was having to wave down the service every single time. Our waiter was often standing at the back ostensibly to provide quick service but she had perfected the art of looking without catching any of her customers eyes. This wouldn't have been such a problem if the other waiters would take your order instead of just saying "the waitress will come soon."

We are usually very good tippers, but we didn't tip this time and the waitress showed her displeasure. Very unprofessional.
